App Store Description

A premium UK Salary Tax Calculator which includes a free Tax Rates Reference Guide and VAT Calculator.

Reached No.1 in UK Finance Charts on the App Store. Also featured on BBC Radio 4 & Sunday Times.

Unlike some free tax calculator apps, Tax Tool has all calculations and data built-in, so there's no need for an internet connection - use it anytime and anywhere, even if you don't have a signal!

Also, in addition to the latest 2016/17 and 2017/18 tax years, Tax Tool can calculate all the way back to 2009.


SPECIAL FEATURES

• Perform Reverse Salary Calculations for working out your target salary from the take-home pay you need - useful for job interviews and pay rise negotiations

• View a pocket guide of key UK tax rates, limits and allowances, including Income Tax, National Insurance, Capital Gains Tax, Stamp Duty Land Tax and Pension Schemes

• Email your results, including a breakdown of the calculation, for sharing or backup purposes


CUSTOMER REVIEWS

"Brilliant app. Just saved me £160. Email and print give a very clear printed breakdown."

"This app is easy to use...I rarely write app reviews, but this one deserves all the praise it gets..."

"Outstanding - one of the best personal finance apps available."


OVERVIEW

Tax Tool is designed for UK taxpayers in paid employment, using the Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) system of automatic tax deduction.

The app was inspired by the quality of Apple's own apps. It was designed to be comprehensive, but also to be very easy to use and input information, with immediate results.

Choose to enter as much or as little as you want: accuracy is improved if you enter more information and if you enter your Tax Code, but it still gives a useful rough guide if you enter none of these.

A key feature is that it can perform reverse salary calculations. You can enter your desired take-home pay (what you need to receive, after payroll taxes are deducted, to cover your everyday lifestyle) and Tax Tool will instantly work out the salary needed to achieve that target. You can easily flip between these to work out net pay from gross salary or vice-versa.

The app also performs UK VAT calculations, and contains a handy reference for UK tax rates, limits and allowances.

Quick and simple: this is not designed to be a replacement for a full tax return (it doesn’t ask for full details on all your financial affairs), but it does provide a quick and useful estimate of the amount you will receive in your pay packet.
